Behind the intake manifold, its a huge socket. The plug has a collar that has to be pulled back about 1/8 inch, then it is removed like a normal squeeze plug. Theres a schematic that makes it real obvious but I'm on mobile and can't find it quickly now.

Edit: yea forgot about the screen!

You don’t have to replace the screen, but it should be pulled and cleaned. Big deal with DOD engines.

Definitely, and probably a good idea to have around for when you pull the old one, and break the cage. :shock:
